European Union Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund
The Migration Board promotes the possibilities of migration by running a project co-financed by the European Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF).
AMIF's support will improve the reception capacity and asylum system in Sweden through, for example, development of interaction models between different actors, better support for vulnerable groups, systematic follow-up, evaluation and research or the development of new methods and working practices for resettlement management.
One of these projects run by the Swedish Migration Board is 'Asylum Rights' Core' (Understanding Asylum). The aim of the project is to raise the quality of asylum rights' core questions; assessment of the applicant's oral statement and assessment of the applicant's future risk upon returning.
After the end of the project, the Swedish Migration Board intends to implement the training programs as a regular activity. In the long term, the measure will increase the skills of staff and thus improve the situation of the applicant
Of importance to the project is that the aims and objectives spread to other EU Member States and help to develop the EU's common asylum system. An international reference group is therefore linked to the project to facilitate this task.
